When I first contacted Encouraging Kids I was exhausted, angry, and wanted to just run away. I
was trying to be a calm parent but I just kept
screaming all the time. I wasn't sure what to expect.
The staff was so warm and welcoming. First thing
they said was "it takes a tremendous amount of
courage to walk in here and ask for help, you're in
a safe place, let's get started".
I still get exhausted sometimes, I still get angry,
but now I don't take it out on my kids.

Encouraging Kids Family Resource Center is a private, nonprofit 501c3 organization that began as a way for us to do what we love. We offer peaceful, positive parent education programs & support, parent-child groups, special education advocacy, professional development, supervised visitation services & more in a safe, warm, supportive setting.
There is no single job as important & demanding as parenting. Our failure to give parents specific training for their very difficult job seems based on the belief that if you are a human being you should know how to raise one. We believe parents DO have the ability and motivation to raise physically and emotionally healthy children with adequate support and information. We encourage parents to be critical thinkers and advocates for their children, themselves and their families. When you know better, you do better.
Our vision is to help create peaceful families and communities by providing current, trauma-informed, brain-friendly research and information to those who interact with our kids at home, in school, and in our communities.
WE WILL PROVIDE A LOW COST, EASY WAY FOR YOU & YOUR STAFF TO IMPROVE SKILLS, ADD NEW TOOLS TO YOUR BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT TOOLBOX, AND MEET CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS. YOUR LOCATION OR OURS!
